11:03 am
don't want to stand in the gridlock traffic, then it's best to wait until after 10:00 tonight to try to cross the bay bridge. so you've got to kind of decide what's more important to you, sitting in the traffic and getting there sooner or having a more relaxed trip by waiting and leaving the house later. now with more on traffic, we're going to go to danella sealock. >> on i-95 it's looking slow already if you're making your way past lorton, when you start to see the volume pick up. i can tell you as you continue southbound getting closer and closer towards the occoquan, really jammed in that area. but you're moving, 35 miles per hour, 40 minutes to get from the beltway to quantico. as megan mentioned, looks good on route 50 eastbound, drive by and say hello to megan, you're nice and clear. a live look as you make your way past the bay bridge, back to you. >> say hello to megan. thank you. and taking a look outside right now, it seems like a great

new information this morning on the charity started by a former penn state football coach accused of sexual abuse. jerry sandusky founded the second mile, and once was a public face of that charity. the charity is now asking a judge to allow it to transfer programs and millions of dollars in assets to a texas-based youth ministry that serves abused and neglected children. the people running the second
11:11 am
mile say the charity has been financially crippled by the child sex abuse scandal. sandusky is charged with more than 50 counts of sexual abuse involving ten alleged cases with children. the man arrested in the killing of a 6-year-old who vanished decades ago is expected to make his first court appearance today. this comes 33 years to the day the boy disappeared in new york city. etan patz vanished while walking to his bus stop. new york police arrested 51-year-old pedro hernandez yesterday. police say hernandez admitted to luring the boy into a building, choking him and dumping his body in the trash. >> hernandez described to the detectives how he lured young etan from the school bus stop at west broadway and prince street. with the promise of a soda. >> and hernandez will be arraigned for second-degree murder today. patz was the first missing child to appear on a milk carton.

well lawyers on both sides of the trayvon martin case are asking the judge to keep some of the evidence private. the evidence includes cell phone messages from george zimmerman, phone records from martin and witness information. normally, that information is part of the public record under florida law. both sides say releasing this information would make it difficult to find an impartial jury for this case. they also want a chance to review all of the evidence before deciding what the public should be allowed to see. today, jurors in the john edwards trial enter their sixth day of deliberations and they don't appear to be close to a verdict. jurors asked to review all 500 plus pieces of evidence, including details of money given to edwards during his 2008 presidential campaign. legal experts say the fact that the jury has requested the evidence again means they aren't close to agreeing on a verdict. orlando police say they're making progress in a search for a missing mother of three. police have created a special
11:13 am
panel of 45 investigators to reexamine the evidence in michelle parker's disappearance. she's been missing since november 17th, the same day the episode of "the people's court" featuring her aired. parker and her ex-fiancé dale smith junior were on the show to settle a dispute over a $5,000 engagement ring. smith has been named as a prime suspect in her disappearance, but hasn't been charged. parker's mother and sister made a stop on the "today show," they say they hope smith is not responsible for parker's disappearance. >> since day one i have said that enter is if there is any other leads, that we'll follow them. unfortunately, there's just only one out there right now. but -- it would be very unfortunate to have those children grow up and be told one day that their mother disappeared because of their father. >> so far, orlando detectives have recovered michelle's phone and her car. but nothing else. well right now, hurricane
11:14 am
bud is closing in on mexico. the storm is expected to make landfall today and it weakened a bit overnight and is now a category 2 hurricane warning with winds up to 102 miles per hour. the storm could dump a foot of rain, causing flash flooding and landslides there. starting today, virginians can prepare for the upcoming hurricane season and save money at the same time. emergency items like batteries, flashlights and first aid kits that cost under $60 will be exempt from the state's 5% sales tax. gener generators that cost less than $1,000 are also exempt. the tax holiday lasts through next thursday. we'll have to ask tom if he thinks it's too soon to think about all that. i guess not, with bud out there churning. >> and for us, our concern is usually in early, mid september, late september, early october, our normal time of having any threats around our region. today after the morning clouds broke out, the sunshine is

11:25 am
little bit darker, so that will make your bottom look a little bit smaller. and it brings your attention up to the bust area. the aqua in the straps is also great because it then brings your attention up to the shoulders, what every woman really wants to do is maximize their positives. and minimize the negts so whatever you feel your figure flaws are, even if you have great shoulders or whatever, this -- >> will work. >> gorgeous, we've got a couple more we want to show, so let's move along and bring out our next one. tell us what this suit is good for. >> this suit is a tank eveni, if you're very long-torsoed. many many of us have just had baby or have put on a couple of pounds so this little skirted bottom is very nice, because it covers up the hill area. but yet, it's a little bit sexy. the top can be converted into a bando, so you don't have to worry about any line, tanning
11:26 am
lines. and what's nice about this is that you can buy this suit in a medium top and an extra small bottom if you need to. >> that will make a big difference for a lot of us, that's really great and it can cover the tummy if you've got one. which she hasn't got, thank you so much, that's just beautiful. tell us about the next suit that's coming up. >> the next suit, she's wearing a cover-up by island company. this is a great shirt, you can multitask with this shirt. it can go on top of a bathing suit or on top of a pair of jeans and can you can wear it out to dinner or for some lunch. underneath she's wearing a shoshanna suit, they come bust-sized, we carry suits up to g-cup, so that is good and again you can mix and match the bottom. >> i was going to ask you about that. so the size and the shoes are

11:35 am
>> reporter: fairfax county police spokesman say they're still trying to figure out exactly what they're dealing with here. now they know that they have two victims, stabbing victim and a gunshot victim. but they don't know exactly what led to this happening. now the gunshot victim showed up here at a fairfax county county courthouse just before midnight last night. police say he was transported there by a friend who was trying to help. he told police that his stabbing happened in chantilly. he is now being treated for nonlife-threatening injuries. then shortly after that, another victim shows up at the fair oaks hospital. but this man is suffering from a stab wound. he also told police that his stabbing happened in chantilly. but police say beyond that right now, neither one of the victims are being very cooperative, so they don't have a lot of information. but they do believe that these folks knew each other and that this may have resulted in some kind of an argument that happened at a chantilly bar. it's very strange where they both ended up. but because neither one of them
11:36 am
are being very cooperative at this point, police say they don't have a lot of information to go on. at this point, we have no suspect information and no information about possible arrests for either one of the victims in fairfax county, i'm tracee wilkins, news4. and elderly man is in the hospital after being burned in a kitchen fire. it happened just before 10:00 last night at the home on old meadow road in mclean, virginia. firefighters say the 91-year-old suffered third-degree burns. he was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. the cause of the fire is under investigation. just how much of an impact is president obama having on the efforts to legalize same-sex marriage in maryland? check out the results of a new public policy poll. according to that poll, 57 of likely voters in maryland say they'll vote in favor of same-sex marriage if the issue makes it on to november's ballot. 37% of likely voters say they're against making the marriages legal.

11:38 am
cards to cover the cost of taxes. fortunately the woman's bank became suspicious when she withdrew $8,000 in cash. they alerted police who froze payment on 11 of the gift cards she bought. >> i think we have a good police force and it was pure luck, maybe the good lord was on our side. >> police say they fear there are other victims out there who are too embarrassed to come forward. well today we're learning the details of how you can say good-bye to the godfather of go-go, chuck brown. thousands of his fans are expected to attend a public viewing and memorial next week. the viewing will take place next tuesday at the howard theater from 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. the memorial service will happen next thursday from noon until 3:00 p.m. at the washington convention center. chuck brown died last week at the age of 75. he had been suffering from pneumonia. our time is 11:38, still
